Theodore “Ted” Horowitz aka Popa Chubby presented his new CD “The Catfish” at Bluesgarage, Isernhagen DE on 2016-10-29. Ted played an excellent concert which lasts more than 3 hours. I got the impression that he wasn’t tired at all. Also the keyboarder Dave Keyes’ playing and singing was great. He was also doing the support act for Popa Chubby.
Theodore Joseph “Ted” Horowitz (born March 31, 1960 in The Bronx, New York City, United States), who plays under the stage name of Popa Chubby (a play on the slang idiom “pop a chubby”, meaning to get an erection), is an American electric blues singer, songwriter, and guitarist. At age thirteen Horowitz began playing drums; shortly thereafter, he began listening to the music of the Rolling Stones and started playing guitar. Although he grew up in the 1970s, Horowitz was influenced by artists of the 1960s, including Jimi Hendrix and Cream, among others. Horowitz first came to public attention after winning a national blues talent search sponsored by KLON, a public radio station in Long Beach, California, which is now known as KKJZ. He won the New Artist of the Year award and as a result was chosen as the opening act at the Long Beach Blues Festival in 1992.
